trishyla,

I’m in San Jose and the weather hasn’t been quite so hot as down south , but definitely the warmest October I remember in the over 30 years I’ved lived here.

As for sinuses, on my PET in July a nasal polyp was noted in my right maxillary sinus. I also had a massive sinus infection. I spent a week on Prednisone and three weeks on Augmentin. Then I had a head CT and unfortunately the polyp remains unchanged. The pain/pressure it caused is still there but improved. I have a video consult with a head and neck surgeon tomorrow. Hope yours clears up soon!

Trishyla, my DH had dizziness which was cured by the Eply Maneuver. It's an easy cure. I hope your dizziness is caused by something that simple and easily done. It's evidently pretty common.

Trishyla...try not to worry too much about the dizziness. I have been getting it on and off for years. When it first happened I had a CT scan and nothing showed up. Sometimes even meds can cause it and a bunch of other things that aren't cause for alarm. (((hugs)))

Jackie, "everybody after Scalia" is "illegitimate?" Are you forgetting Sotomayor & Kagan???

Trish, 2020 sucks, but seems to be sucking harder for you. You might be developing a touch of Meniere' Syndrome--in which case limiting sodium, caffeine, sugar & alcohol can help. More likely, though, that the excess particulate matter in the SoCA air is either clogging your sinuses or causing you to secrete more mucus & fluid--which can engorge your ears' semicircular canals and interfere with their ability to maintain balance.

Conservative GOP MI ex-Gov. Rick Snyder came out today and endorsed Biden. And are you sure that by replacing Pence "with a Kennedy," they're not talking about LA's GOP Sen. John "Foghorn Leghorn" Kennedy? Pretty hard to run a candidate whose existence can't be proven but whose death can be. (DNA in bones doesn't lie, assuming it comes down to having JFK Jr. exhumed, with survivors' permission).

If I have a Zoom New Year's Eve party, and someone says (as one invariably does year after year) "good riddance to 2020, 2021 has got to be better," so help me I will find a way to reach through my screen and throw my drink in their face. What part of "jinx" do they not understand? Fate always snorts and says "here, hold my beer." Hate to be Debbie Downer, but at least the first half of 2021 will be far worse than 2020 has been, until a safe & effective vax is available & distributed to 50% of the population. Only then, when the (estimated, from various antibody-test studies) 20% of Americans with COVID antibodies are added, can we achieve solid enough herd immunity to start easing up once the weather gets warmer and moister again come late spring. Bob says that if safety is proved but effectiveness is still iffy, he will nonetheless take the vaccine if offered. He'd be no worse off than if he hadn't. (Health care workers would be offered it first).

I'd rather be bored, cooped up, frustrated and depressed (as I was from late winter through early June 2020) than live with the abject terror that comes from deliberately or even carelessly exposing myself to infection. Having dodged that bullet once, I figure that God (or whoever or whatever force runs the universe) gave me a warning and a second chance, and I'm not about to waste it. If that means it'll be just Bob & me at Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners, so be it. "Pandemic fatigue?" The only "pandemic fatigue" that is legitimate is being tired of having the virus still out there and stalking us--not of the simple but irksome measures we can take to avoid it. Without safety, there can be no economy.

I forgot who it was here (BlueGirl?) who said that because her state's Dem. Senate nominee can't win, she's going to vote for a third (or fourth or fifth or non-) party candidate to "send a message?" It pains me to disagree with any BCO sister on this thread, but the only "message" doing that sends is one that will both go unheard and have no effect whatsoever other than expand Cornyn's lead. (Has NOBODY remembered the 2016 results of having "sent a message" or "made a statement" by voting for Stein or Johnson in a close-contest state that narrowly flipped to Trump)? TX is getting tighter & tighter, and Cornyn fears so much for his seat that today he began dissing Dear Leader (comparing having supported him to "being in a bad marriage"), in the hopes of stanching the hemorrhage of his supporters turning to his Dem. opponent. If enough TX Dems. stopped "making a statement" and instead voted for M.J. Hegar (in itself as powerful a "message" as can be sent), TX can be flipped--at least in the Senate.
